    Choke choke choke, thats all people know to use whenever someone loses a close game. Give credit to England that they performed well at the end and won crucial moments and to indin women who almost took it home and were brilliant through out the tournament. How much women cricket you guys watch to call it a choke? Such games always go down the wire in women cricket and Indian girls played their heart out in the tournament and even today they took the game till the end but England were just a little better than them. We should be proud of the women team.

    Go and write such nonsense about women on some Pakistani forum. Our women players have made us proud. We don't need this crap here.

    Team had already been rescued by GG and Kohli before Dhoni came into bat at 135/3. It is not like Dhoni came into bat at 10/2 or 3. Yes, he did well to finish the game but GG's innings was better.

    What is wrong with this guy? Half the time he is injured or sick. Such a talent not being allowed to bloom because of health reasons, frustrating.

    Many of you will remember Mahavir Shah who played a corrupt cop in countless movies. His image as the bad cop was so iconic that when I watched the movie Judwaa and he was a cop (once again), I just assumed he is going to be bad. But <<shock>> <<shock>> he was actually a good cop in that movie and ended up getting killed by the villains. Sadly, Shah passed away when he was 40 in Chicago as a result of a car crash.

    SL test series is about to begin, Overseas tours are coming . In few days we ll be discussing team combinations Every tours holds a key towards the future goal, n our goal is to earn our tarnished reputation overseas. The brand of cricket we have seen under kohli gives us high hopes and we also have a good bunch of players in the right age group. For that to happen this team has to fill its loopholes. 1. backup opener 2. Backup keeper 3. wkt taking spinner 4. backup middle order batsman 5. Seaming all rounder 6. Fresh blood in fast bowling But there are some solution that can be found on this tour in kuldeep n Pandya. The potential Wkt taking spinner and Potential seaming all rounder But its important we play them and give them opp to learn . 1. Pandya- In overseas condition we need a 5th bowler + cushion in batting. Jayant yadav cant be our answer overseas neither can be jadeja whose batting is only good against spinners. So we are left with Pandya n Shankar , shankar is on A-tour and opportunity to give him 4 day games has already been missed. Pandya is someone who can destroy spinners and looks good against fast bowling. A bowler who clocks above 140k , get seam movement, bounce, bowls a wkt taking line and is deceptively quick. So he sounds a good package and better then binny n jadeja as all rounder. We have given chances to yuvraj, raina, rohit who failed so why we have fear with pandya . He might fail with bat but will still contribute with ball. A 5th bowler like him will always fetch wkts unlike binny who cud have done the role of containing. We played binny on last tour of SL so lets try someone better this time Pandya. Pandya will only improve if he plays. Come overseas tour we ll have to give him a chance so why not now, the way he takes on spinners who knws he might get the better of herath. If pandya plays all 3 test higher chances he ll come out as better cricketer. Also i have seen him take blinders in slips in domestic Another good slip fielder wnt harm among many droppers Test cricket can improve Pandya batting - as he is going to get more and regular opp with bat then in ODi at 7, and he ll keeping getting his 10+ overs for bowling as well. 2. Kuldeep yadav- before i put his case, ill have to start with jadeja as for me kuldeep shud replace jadeja despite him being no.1 ranked Do we see jadeja as our wkt taking bowler overseas Do we see him going as an all rounder Shud we take 3 spinners overseas- ashwin , jadeja , Kuldeep I have one answer to all this question - NO . Then whats the harm in dropping him now. Yes its subcontinent- so we can give kuldeep a chance safely and didnt we win in SL last time without jadeja. Jadeja has become no .1 by bowling in India with Sg but now its all going to be kookabura and that ball diff has effected even our gr8 spinners in past. Ashwin did really well last time in SL and contributes more with bat then jadeja. For me if we have to win overseas we need a wkt taking spinner and that hs to be decided among kuldeep or ashwin, i dnt see jadeja as a wkt taking spinner overseas. Neither we shud carry 3 spinners overseas. Its high time we look at filling these gap holes on this tour, few opp have already been missed lets not waste anymore. IF we can trust these 2 in similar condition how wud we in tougher conditions Lets keep individual n individual rankings aside , its all about the team not individuals

    “From what I know, Kumble is very a strong individual with a very good work ethic, so is Virat. Kumble is single-minded and Virat was single-minded even when he was captaining the Indian team during his U-19 days. So I guess, it’s a case of like poles repelling each other,” Whatmore quoted saying to the media. “It’s a little bit unusual, isn’t it? From what I understand, there has been a lack of communication between the two. That doesn’t help anyone, neither the team nor the player or the coach. I am not privy to what has happened between Kohli and Kumble but it is unfortunate such a thing has happened and it has been blown up so much in public domain” he added. On being asked about his stint with India’s skipper Virat Kohli, the 63-year-old said, ”Virat was always very direct. He also led by example and that earned him respect from his team members. But there is a vast difference between a player leading an under-19 team and a senior international side.” Link- http://circleofbollywood.in/2017/07/i-am-surprised-by-the-whole-kohli-kumble-saga-dave-whatmore/ Among all the bullshit opinion someone actually tried to make some sense .

    That's why Dhoni's innings is one of the greatest knocks in ODIs. Chasing in World Cup final and that too in front of home crowd of 100,000 people and after having lost Sachin, Sehwag early takes immense mental strength and resolve. Some losers who spend all their time on internet and at best can only give arm chair opinions can never understand that.

    Proud of them but unfortunately it was a choke....they could have won it easily. Yes no one saw them qualify for knockouts or get past Australia. Even in finals they were the underdogs when it began but they were in dominant position and they should have WON it and that's why it hurts and that's why it's a choke and that's a undeniable fact but having said that I agree with the rest of your post. PROUD OF THEM!!!

    I think COA is making them cough money at women's cricket. For the first time they travelled first class lile men and got similar daily allowance. Bcci also has announced prize money. This performance has gone down well with people and the media. Mandana and harmanpreet have become popular celebrities. It's a long way to go but their lot will.improve. People will follow them more now.

    India tour of SL

    Its tough to be in India's shoes in tours like these. You are expected to do well but wont gain anything even if you win convincingly. People are just going to say its the expected result. Whereas Sri Lanka have everything to gain because even if they win a single game, it will be considered an upset because even Zimbabwe defeated them just recently. That's why tours of SL, WI are not fun anymore because standards of cricket have fallen quite a lot.

    Now that Rahul is injured, I wonder if Kohli will move to 3 to facilitate Rohit at 4 and push Pujara to open again. This would be a perfect way to start project Rohit.

    Did anyone watch Mithali Raj getting run out? I was livid with that, epitome of laziness. How can you not ground your bat in and run like talking some stroll in a lawn? Also, Veda and Harman played rash shots when all that was needed was strike rotation. If you cannot chase 230 in this day and age, you don't deserve to even compete at this level.

    In the long term it would have been better for english women players and all women players if India had won. The masses of our population would have gotten interested and the game would have eventually been flushed with cash Similar way the men's 2007 T20 win changed the face of T20s and men's cricket forever, us winning here would have done the same thing for women;s cricket.

    Indian team showed in the semi finals why it was a threat even though not the favorites in that game. We beat Australia fair and square and now are in the finals. England at home are the favorites again, but Indian women team again remain a big threat to their opposition. Lets go India, win the cup.

    In fact, it is the other way around, where most people feel our language is superior to Hindi to be allowed to be imposed upon us. I have tried to explain these a few times, but it is a socio-political issue. It is because of the resentment caused by Hindi-speaking people trying to dominate socially and wanting Hindi-only and not being sensitive about local languages. We feel, being a inferior language than our local language, why should it dominate us and they want us to learn it forcibly. The script is different, we don't have the same connection like Marathi, Gujarati people have with Hindi. It is a foreign language and only a minute percentage speak. Hindi/English is the central govt's official language of communication, but wherever it applies, it should apply 3-language formula in banks, post offices etc. The forms are in English and Hindi and some rural poor people in Karnataka can't even fill bank forms because they don't know either Hindi or English. That is f'in imposition! Banks/PO forms should be available in local language as well. I am sure Marathi people have ensured that somebody in Latur can fill bank/PO forms in Marathi. This is what Karnataka is fighting as well.

    @zen You keep saying Hindi is the linga franca. Freudian Slip? Why does India need a lingua franca? We have done well so far without one. I'm no expert on history, but the two states that I remember that tried to force/forced a dominant language on others were fragmented. Pakistan when it tried to impose Urdu on Bangladesh. And the USSR imposed Russians in all areas of the Soviet Union. While language may not be the only reason in the fragmentation of these nations, it did add to the local resentment. PS: As an aside, how many of you who want to have Hindi as the lingua franca even read Hindi newspapers/contemporary literature/novels etc?

    It is Mike Horn. Sachin, Zak, Bhajji and UV have on record gone on to praise his mentoring after that tough loss against RSA in the group match. SRT even went to the extent of saying that we wouldn't have won the WC without the exercises organized by Horn which aimed at team building and delivering under pressure. Horn went on help German Football team on their way to the 2014 FIFA WC title run as well, he is a also a great motivational coach, probably the best in the world. Sandy Gordon played a similar role in the 2003-04 period. A shame that BCCI with so much $$$ can't hire such a guy.

    How does including the national language on a signboard push Kannada to "irrelevance"? Given Banglaore's evolution as a true metropolis, and a resulting population boom in non-kannada speakers, it just makes sense. Why so defensive?
